Purdue President Mitch Daniels, who became Purdue’s 12th president in January, told Business First this week that university officials are exploring a possible rebranding of some of its operations (such as the College of Technology, which operates a location in New Albany) under the name Purdue Polytechnic Institute.
The institute is part of a Daniels's initiative called Purdue Moves. It would focus on technology transfer, innovation and application-oriented research.
